​This Private Equity role sits within a highly respected corporate team that is clear and confident in its growth strategy for the coming years.

The Opportunity

You can gain high level exposure here faster and chase progression sooner. A well established pipeline of major private equity clients forms the backbone of a practice, giving associates the chance to build an exceptionally strong deal record.

In addition to the top line career opportunity, the firm has a strong commitment to offering a well balanced environment. Particularly within transactional teams where the quieter times between deals are actively encouraged, before inevitably it becomes 'all hands to the pump' again. Hybrid working arrangements are available.

The PE team is well supported by a full suite of complimentary teams, from banking & finance experts through to contracts, IP etc. - so while you are encouraged to develop a well rounded skillset, the firm also boasts a high calibre of specialists to collaborate with.

About You

You will be a highly skilled and commercially astute transactional lawyer with capabilities operating as an post-qualified associate. The exact years of experience is quite open, and the role could be scoped up or down in order to secure someone with the right qualities for the team.

You will be comfortable advising on M&A / PE transactions for corporates and PE shops, ideally with a range of different deal sizes, types and timelines.

You will be someone who is keen to contribute to the firm outside of purely technical legal skills, including leading internally with the team, interacting with clients confidently and adding to the social fabric of the firm.
